Gucci Launches @guccibeauty With A History Lesson On Art Babes

Paint me like one of your Gucci girls.

It’s been rumoured that Gucci is relaunching its beauty division and, while a relaunch is still in speculation, we can confirm a real deal launch of @guccibeauty — a place for the house to showcase its cosmetics and fragrances, as well as looks from fashion shows and collaborations with artists. But right now the account isn’t doing much of that, so our speculation grows thick.

Instead, the account is giving us an art history lesson that’s guided by Alessandra Michel’s vision of beauty. The feed features loads of beautiful artworks that span across history, ethnicity, culture and geography. Art writers have been gathered to recount the stories behind the works, and you can read some of our faves below:
